The Law Society of Alberta is turning to the public to better understand the barriers people face in accessing when getting legal help.
Executive Director Don Thompson said they are in the midst of touring the province holding informal sessions, including Thursday’s session at the Kahanoff Centre in Calgary.
“They’re meetings where people can come and tell their stories. They’re not presentations, they are drop-in and there are people to talk to who will be very interested to have conversations with Albertans about their experiences in finding legal help or not finding legal help if the case may be,” he said.
Thompson said among the bigger concerns is affording fees and understanding the cost of accessing legal help.
The Law Society is also accepting submissions via its website.
